Parts of Broadway to become dedicated pedestrian, bike areas

I missed this last week, but apparently NYC is shutting down 2 of 4 lanes on Broadway between 42nd & Herald Square to create a public park-like setting along the east side of the street, with pedestrian areas including cafe tables, chairs and umbrellas, and a dedicated bike lane.

Instead of the proposed streetcars in Atlanta, I wouldn't mind seeing this tried on parts of Peachtree.
